At the end of the first Test Ricky Ponting felt Australia did "a pretty good job" of staying in touch with the over-rate, but the team has been fined for the second game in a row by the match referee Chris Broad. Ponting was docked 30% of his match fee of A$12,750, double the punishment of his team-mates, for being three behind during the 149-run victory over New Zealand that ended on the fourth morning.

I also thought Ponting did a pretty good job sticking to the over-rate in this match.

Perhaps the ICC expects too much from Captains and Cricket teams these days in regards to over-rates?
